Here are some other options at $200 a pair:
Infinity Primus P163
HTD Level 2
Those cambridge have surprisingly good bass for a small speaker, and many people are very happy with them. There is a thread on here that is going to do a shootout of speakers in this price range, might be worth subscribing. I have heard the Polk, Infinity, and EMP and I would say for front speakers Infinity > EMP > Polk. But this is just my opinion from listening, and your mileage may vary.
